Prelude

(Please take this time during the prelude to quiet your hearts before God

and peacefully anticipate the movement of the Holy Spirit.)

 

*Call to Worship                                                 Psalm 4

Leader:   Answer me when I call, O God of my right!
You gave me room when I was in distress.
Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.

People:  How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame?
How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies?

Leader:   But know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him.

People:  When you are disturbed, do not sin;
ponder it on your beds, and be silent.

Leader:   Offer right sacrifices,
and put your trust in the Lord.

People:  There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!

 Let the light of your face shine on us, O Lord!”

Leader:   You have put gladness in my heart
more than when their grain and wine abound.

People:  I will both lie down and sleep in peace;
for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety.
